While Edan‘s critically acclaimed debut, “Primitive Plus“, was a celebration of Hip-hop’s golden age and a true throwback, his sophomore album, “Beauty & The Beat“, is a vast musical collage that contains many different influences; Hip-hop, rock, pop, dusty breaks, hazy loops, luxurious off-kilter samples and curveball tempo changes that aare all crafted into one cohesive piece of art. Edan’s vast lyrical imagination and technical wizardry (he also self-produced every track) alone make “Beauty & The Beat” a standout.

The album’s lead-single “Fumbling Over Words That Rhyme”, a track which true Hip-hop enthusiasts and historians will not only appreciate, but ultimately debate is a perfect sample of what “Beauty & The Beat” has to offer. “Smile” is a gripping behind the scenes look at a successful yet internally tormented star. “Promised Land” – the symbolism of imagination and its power to overcome all that is perilous with positivity, patience and understanding show how Edan has progressed both artistically and as an individual. Check out “Rock And Roll” for a heavy hitting beat and “Torture Chamber” for amazing mic skills. Features Mr.Lif (Def Jux), Percee P (Stones Throw), Dagah and Insight. The double vinyl version a US pressed, thick vinyl, in a shrink wrapped ‘old style’ 60’s heavy card jacket. Edan will be deejaying at Fabric on February 4th and touring the UK in March.

The album Edan – Beauty & The Beat (Lewis Recordings) will be released March 14, 2005.
